ROV services provider, M2 Subsea, said it has secured a contract to provide inspection services for Premier Oil’s Balmoral floating production vessel (FPV).
M2 Subsea will carry out the 2018 inspection of the vessel’s hull, flowlines, umbilicals, risers and subsea template.
The Balmoral is a purpose built semi-submersible FPV which is situated in the Balmoral field, block 16/21a and 16/21b of the central North Sea.
The work scope will be carried out by M2 Subsea’s Mohican ROV at a depth of 140 meters. The Mohican is an inspection class ROV rated to 2000m with a garage tether management system.
Mike Arnold, chief executive officer of M2 Subsea, said: “We will carry out the 2018 inspection for the Balmoral vessel and work with Premier Oil to then determine what work needs carried out going forward.
“This is an important contract for us and is an excellent opportunity to strengthen our client base with a major North Sea operator.”
